Hidden Agenda by Lisa Harris

I greatly enjoyed book three in the Southern Crimes books and went back and picked up book one to read as well.  ( I had already read book 2).  I liked finding out how the mystery of what really happened with Michael finally gets resolved, but I didn't feel like I was missing something by not having read all the books.  I also liked reading about settings that I was somewhat familiar from having visited that area of Georgia.
      Michael Hunt finds himself on the run after escaping death again and this time he doesn't fully know who is helping him, or who he can really trust.  He finds himself on the radar again while trying to escape and his family and friends find out that he is still alive.  This book has many twists and turns in it that will keep you wondering who to trust and how everything will work out.  I also liked getting an update on characters from other books.  I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good story with twists and turns.

Get Wise: Make Great Decisions Everyday by Bob Merritt

This was an interesting book that gives insight into decision making.  It gives you Biblical background and helpful information to use in your learning and directing you with good guidance.  It would make a great study tool as it has questions that could be used in a group setting with a book club or study group.
     This book gives information that can be put to immediate use as it is written in a way that is  easy to read , understand, and apply.
     I received this book free from the publisher to review.

Gabriel's Atonement by Vickie Mcdonough

This is a great book that gives you a historical view of the Oklahoma land rush through the eyes of Gabe and Lara.  Gabe finds himself drawn to Lara after an encounter with her now deceased husband. He feels that he needs to do what he can to make things right.  Lara doesn't feel the same way, but soon realizes that she needs all the help she can get and accepts Gabe's help.
     I liked seeing how the two main characters came to accept each other and work together towards a common goal.  This book made me feel a part of the rush as well as wanting to know how things were going to turn out.  I recommend this book to anyone wanting a good historical read.

Furry Logic by Jane Seabrook

A cute book with great illustrations that will keep you chuckling as you read.  I loved the quotes that were attributed to the animals in this book and the illustrations that accompany them.  A book that you will enjoy reading and sharing with friends.  I felt myself nodding when I read some of the quotes and thinking how the author nailed it.

Love Unexpected by Jody Hedlund

Emma is just trying to make the best of a bad situation when she agrees to marry Patrick the lighthouse keeper.  She finds herself enchanted with his son and believes that she can make the best of it as a lighthouse keeper's wife, especially if she can ease into it.  Her brother is furious when he finds out what she has done, but she trusts that she has made the right decision.
     I liked how Emma learns to stand and make it for herself.  She was able to take what could have been a bad situation and make it work for the best.  I liked her courage and enjoy learning about lighthouses.

Buttermilk Sky by Jan Watson

I have enjoyed other books by this author and this one did not disappoint.  I like how it expands on a character from a previous book, but still allows you to enjoy the story even if you haven't read the other books.  It allows you to understand what is going on and gives you further insight into the characters.  It was interesting to see how the main character was able to step out from what was expected from her and how she was able to interact in a world different from what she grew up in.
     Each person in the book has to learn what is expected of them and how their lives are going to interact.  The have to step out to find out what they really want and how to achieve it.  They learn to put their trust in each other as well as God to figure out what needs to happen even if it is not what they or everyone else might expect.  This was a good book to read in a couple of sittings.  It took a bit to get going, but is enjoyable and recommended.
